Foreign Ministry Slams BBC ‘MISLEADING’ REPORTING ON GAZA ROCKETS

Israeli Embassy to the UK files a formal complaint against broadcaster: "Hamas struck Israel before Israel responded with air strikes."

The Foreign Ministry formally complained to the BBC about its reporting on the violence in the South on Thursday.

A BBC headline stated “Gaza air strikes ‘kill woman and child’ after rockets hit Israel,” quoting the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry. The article’s subheadline said “Militants… fired dozens of rockets,” when the count had gone up to over 150. Its tweet leading to the article reads: “Israeli air strikes ‘kill woman and toddler.’”

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon respond – ed on Twitter: “Your title is deliberately misleading!!! Israel reacted following the launching of over 100 rockets at Southern Israel, targeting and injuring civilians. Change it immediately!!!”
